Conference on Systems Analysis, Data Mining and Optimization in 

February 2-4, 2005

J. Wayne Reitz Union
University of Florida
Gainesville, FL


In recent years, experimental methods in biomedicine have 
resulted in massive amounts of data. The urgent need for 
efficient methods of processing and understanding this data has 
resulted in the rapid development of a new exciting research 
direction - applying interdisciplinary approaches incorporating 
systems analysis, data mining and optimization techniques to 
the analysis of datasets arising in biomedical applications. 
Application areas include genome studies, cardiology, cancer 
diagnosis, neurology, etc.

Among the examples of considered datasets one can mention 
genome sequences, gene expression data, protein structural 
data, protein-protein interaction data, protein-DNA interaction 
data, as well as radiological data, and EEG data.
Systems analysis, data mining and optimization techniques play 
an important role in analyzing and integrating these large 
datasets, as well as in discovering the biological processes 
underlying the data arising in biomedical applications.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together 
theoreticians and practitioners representing different fields - 
biomedicine, engineering, computer science - in attempt to 
share knowledge, ideas, and techniques.

Call for Abstracts

We invite researchers and practitioners working in different 
areas related to Systems Analysis, Data Mining and Optimization 
Techniques in Biomedicine to submit abstracts for possible 
conference presentations.  Those who submit abstracts will be 
notified regarding whether a presentation based on the abstract 
can be scheduled for the conference. Accepted abstracts will be 
printed in the conference program and speakers will have 
approximately thirty minutes to present their material.  The 
conference facilities will have projectors for presenting 
material from a laptop computer, as well as overhead projectors.

The deadline for abstract submission is December 15, 2004.
